The intensification of anthropic pressures on the environment, and the growing demand for natural resources, have led to an advance in the process of environmental degradation, thus enhancing the degree of fragility of the environment. Therefore the understanding of the relation of human actions to the environment becomes essential to assist territorial planning and to minimize the environmental impacts resulting from this interaction. In view of the above, the present project aims to elaborate a conceptual zoning environmental of the Reservoir of Lobo, northwest of São Paulo, based on the analysis of environmental fragility and the Rural Development Index (RDI). The purpose of this proposal is the elaboration of a subsidy for decision by local public authorities, in order to assist in the preservation of natural resources and in local sustainable development.
